The all new HobbyKing® ™ Edge 540T blurs the line between foam and light plywood 3D airplanes. Featuring a fully built-up fuselage incorporating the use of light plywood framework covered with EPP foam, this Edge 540T is like no other! This synergy of materials offers an ultra-light yet rigid airframe that is shaped like a real airplane. Its rounded cowl, curved canopy, air-foiled stabilizers and smooth lines of the fuse really give this model a scale look.
The 540T's large control surfaces offer a huge amount of deflection thanks to the included servo arm extensions. This combined with the ultra-light airframe allows for anything from lively sport flying to all-out extreme 3D! Prop hanging, spins, tumbles and harriers are all well within this model's book of tricks!
This 540T is outfitted with high quality hardware including carbon fiber landing gear, proper plastic wheels with foam tires, heavy-duty servo arm extensions, high quality nylon spinner and ball-linked control rods. No need to upgrade the hardware on this model, the best is already included!
The HobbyKing® ™ Edge 540T couldn't be easier to build with its bolt-on wings, pre-installed servo mount plates and magnetic canopy. Even the cowl clips on and off without the need for glue/screws. You will simply need to hinge the control surfaces, glue your horizontal/vertical stabilizers, attach the tail wheel mount and install your electronics.
This is one unique and beautiful model with flight characteristics to match. From sport flying to extreme 3D, the Edge 540T can handle it all!

Hi , I bought this plane one month ago and the truth is that is perfect, you just need to harden the motor bracket i already somewhat. She must be about 50 flights and is perfect. the Turnigy motor carries a D3548 / 4 1100KV Outrunner Brushless Motor and the esc 60 A. climbs perfect and it's absolutly for 3D flyingCame packaged extremely nicely with no damages to the plane. Everything went together nicely except on mines the fire wall mounting holes for the motor was a bit off from the cowling so i had to make the middle hole on the firewall a bit bigger so i could move the motor around snd screw it correctly in place to line up with the cowling , now she fits nicely. Very aerobatic plane!! tumbles are crazy and the material is epp so you won't have to worry about crashes or denting up your plane like EPO foam.
Over all i would give this plane a solid 4 star also its a must have for intermediate 3D pilots wanting to Improve on there 3D skills.Das Modell ist der Hammer!
Ich fliege sie mit 4s 3600 mAh an einer 13x6,5. Das Mehrgewicht ist kaum zu spren, sie geht durch alle mir bekannten 3D-Figuren und macht einen Risenspa. Ich kenne kein anderes Modell in dieser Gre, das so neutral fliegt bei maximaler Wendigkeit.
Besonders gutmtig und handzahm ist sie in den Harrierfiguren. Da schaukelt nix und die Ruder sprechen sehr direkt an.
Absolute Empfehlung!Fantastic model!!!!
Rigidit garantita da anima in depron, balsa, betulla e carbonio coperta da EPP.
Colori sgargianti e superfici di comando "autorevoli".
Motore SK3-3548-840kv, elica APC 14x7, batteria 2200 3S 60C, variatore 50A e servocomandi Corona da 12 grammi.
Non mi aspettavo un modello con queste caratteristiche di volo (7-9 minuti acro misto 3D), davvero impressionante!
Tutto quello che serve si trova nella scatola (anche ogiva).
Very very good aircraft but a bit too expensive ... . Quality construction . 900kv NTM 35-48 , 4s 2500mah , 60A esc . 5 minutes of 3D flight.
Servo required high quality. My MG90s do not go at all well with large deflections . I put tiny MG MPX .Great plane once you get it sorted. WARNING - it limps around the sky on a 3536/910 motor (in spite of what some reviewers recommend). When the motor is changed to a Turnigy D3542/6 1000KV Brushless Outrunner Motor it is simply fun to fly (as per the instruction manual)! Goes fantastic on a 14 x 7 prop! Also, best to use the plastic screws to hold the undercarriage in - that way if you do a rough landing the screws are sacrificed rather than the plane. If anyone knows what size the screw thread is would you please post here (guess who needs them).
I use a 2650mah 3c battery, not too heavy. Also they clearly mark where the c/g is on the plane - can't go wrong. The canopy is held on by magnets - it looks dodgy however i haven't been able to shake the canopy off in flight although it is fun trying! Just make sure you put some velcro on the battery and the battery tray to prevent the battery sliding around in flight (can come to a nasty end when this happens - that is how i ripped the landing gear off).
Only get it if you put the 3542 motor in and want to really enjoy flying! Best for those with some experience on aileron sports plane and looking to step into 3d/precision aerobatics.
EnjoyGreat plane at a great price. Good choice for those, like me, wanting a better performing 3D plane but not quite ready to go full on balsa yet. The build was easy. The instructions aren't the best but not hard to figure out. It looks like the plane has been improved but the instructions haven't been updated.
The model flies great but i would to inform customers that the one i've received is not like the model shown in pictures... diferrent colours and other instruments fornishedpreis/Leistungsverhltnis absolut Top. Gut verarbeitet. Selbst das Fahrwerk ist gut in der Holzkonstruktion befestigt. Somit kann es auch mal eine hrtere Landung ab.Mein Setup:Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 3536-1050kv,TURNIGY Plush 60amp Speed Controller,APC Style Propeller 13x6.5, Turnigy 2200mAh 3S 25C Lipo
Flugzeit von ca. 5Minuten. Musste nur etwas Gewicht vorn einkleben und dann passt der Schwerpunkt.Really good! The parts fit well together. Nice quality hardware. Servo arms and spinner included. Great compromise between slow and fast 3D, Stable harriers, high alpha knife edges, Fast knife edge spins, Fast blenders etc etc etc. A 3D beginner could fly this, but I would still reccomend a profile foamy first (RC F*ct*ry Extra 300L) before stepping up to this heavier plane
